Anti-Imperialism.com and its associates have consistently opposed imperialist meddling in countries such as Libya and Syria and struggled against ‘left-wing’ supporters of imperialist intervention. Recently, Third Worldist comrades in Denver took the time to attend a local meeting of the International Socialist Organization. The goal was simple: to discredit the ISO’s position of so-called support […]
During the past weeks, Mathaba.net and other websites mobilized their readers to vote for Muammar Qaddafi in Amnesty International’s Human Rights Heroes online poll. Having successfully brought Muammar Qaddafi to the lead in Amnesty International’s poll, the poll was closed a month early to prevent further exposure of the international support for the former Libyan leader murdered during a US-sponsored uprising.

Beginning in February 2011, a tragedy befall Libya after the United Stated launched covert and overt operations to overthrow the ‘Jamahiriya’ government led by Muammar Gaddafi. Too often, it is easy to focus on the larger picture and ignore the individual human tragedy resulting from imperialist militarism. With this in mind, we present the testimony of Khaled K. El-Hamedi, whose family, including pregnant wife, were killed by a NATO bombing raid on June 20th, 2011.
“My name is Khaled K. El-Hamedi, I am Libyan and I run an international charity for children called the International Organization for Peace, Care and Relief (IOPCR). We have done work helping children affected by conflict including helping orphans in Bosnia and Gaza, Palestine, where I also helped with reconciliation efforts between Hamas and Fatah.
In early February 2011 my country witnessed what now clearly seems to be a Western organised attack on my country, starting with protests fuelled by comments such as those by British Foreign Minister William Hague when he said our leader – Muammar Gaddafi – had fled to Venezuela. Western media outlets and some Arab channels such as Al-Arabiya and Al-Jazeera helped to escalate the situation which then resulted in the NATO bombardment of my country since March 2011. I decided to stay in my country despite the devastation from the NATO campaign to help the civilians, especially the children, to cope with this war. Continue reading
In the wake of NATO bombing in support of CIA-backed “rebels” and the fall of the Qaddafi-led government, forces aligned against the newly-installed lackey regime are beginning to wage guerrilla warfare, leaving much speculation about the future of the oil-rich north African country. NATO, a conglomeration of the Western imperialist militaries, has aligned with a […]
This article written by Maximilian C. Forte and published at Counterpunch.org discusses not only the myth’s surrounding imperialism’s intervention in Libya but also the manner in which they have been accepted and perpetuated by many in the First World, nominal ‘Left.’ Though this articles brings to light many issues in a positive way, reposting here, […]
The plans to make Libya into a subservient state to the U.S. and NATO is getting more complete. Recent reports tell of the “rebels” in Libya making advances in Tripoli the capital. The rebels were aided by airstrikes by manned and unmanned aircraft flown by the western imperial aggressors that targeted military and civilian infrastructure. […]
A new poll shows that the Arab world has a more negative opinion of the United States and president Barack Obama than the year before. As the U.S. attempts to position itself as a leader in the region in the wake of the Arab Spring revolts, the poll shows increased resistance to Amerikan hegemony. Obama […]
This song is on point. Unfortunately, the end of the video glorifies First Worldist activism and protests, which themselves do little for Third World peoples, while sowing confusion regarding the true nature of class under imperialism. The video would be better to show examples of resistance by exploited people of the world: showing First Worlders […]
On July 1st, 2011, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in Tripoli for a massive rally in support of Muammar al-Gaddafi and the Libyan government. The rallies come in the wake of all-around attacks by Western imperialists and their lackey regimes in the Middle East against the north African country’s social and political institutions. Since […]
